5:10 am
i don't want to say any rain or anything but it would be more than just low clouds. cool pattern in place. no doubt about it. it will be here for the whole week. so we've gone from one extreme last week to this. i mean it's just really unusual get this strong of a system in mid-july but that's what's happening. low clouds, drizzle for the coast around the bay low clouds then sunny, breezy. patchy low clouds, sunny, breezy to windy. we're already starting to see some pretty good gusts towards the delta strait and plenty of low clouds out there. water temps continue to be cool. overnight lows are cool. 52 to 57. san jose now 57. i put in 56 though at 7:00. i think they'll come down a degree or so. but it's in the same ballpark. 66 and then 72 sunny but breezy. that will be more of a west- northwest wind coming in for san jose today. west-southwest already fairfield 20 southwest vacaville west at napa south- southwest concord, west 10 at sfo. i think that's a sea breeze. and you can see one system moves in. here comes a second one behind that to kind of reinforce it and continue to dig it down.

5:40 am
inland areas. we've gone from one extreme to the other in one week. seems to be the pattern though. fog, drizzle, cool and breezy this week looks very cool in fact breezy to windy. low clouds decrease each day because inland temperatures nothing really left to support it. a little warmer as we head towards the weekend but not a lot. signs maybe next week we might warm up but not a consensus on it. piece of system there swinging in you can actually see it right there. that may give more than just low clouds say mendocino county and lake county. i'll mention it one of our forecast models actually put a little hint of some rain there but it probably won't do much but might give us more clouds. so temperatures continue along with the low clouds to stay well below average and also that sea breeze is really kicked in. 52 to 57. that 5 # 52's at san rafael but concord 55. 55 redwood city. mown sane rue 54. 53 oakland. napa 54. west-southwest or southwest and it's, well, it's turbo charged and heading all the way out to the sacramento valley. so it's a cool breeze.
5:41 am
and that's the reason why. that low coming in there's another secondary system like spokes in the wheel that come in and keeps dipping, dipping, dipping. the end result is that opens the sea breeze door wider. so the cooling inland not coast and bay. it just can't get much cooler there. we're already in the 50s and 60s. but very, very cool for july as the temperature trend inland on the highs will probably bottom out wednesday or thursday and then start a rebound. fog or low clouds, drizzle, lots of local drizzle coast and bay. cool for july. temperatures really cool. i went with one 80. that was clear lake. 77 st. helena. petaluma 72. san rafael 68. fairfield only 74. 76 pittsburg. 62 berkeley, oakland. walnut creek only 72. 74 danville. 78 morgan hill. 72 san jose. even 74 saratoga. 71 sunny vale. 73 woodside. ratherton yesterday 73. today lots of upper 60s low 70s
